crossover relief valve and angle cylinder psi?

    We have several truck plows converted to skid loader plows and have recently blown the seals out of one of the cylinders due to hitting curbs ect.
    I have heard of guys put crossover relief valves on the blade to protect the cylinders from this sort of thing but I can't find anything specific as far as what valves would work and what psi should I set it at. Any help is appreciated.

    It says adjustable between 1500-3000 psi. Is there a model that incorporates both cylinders or do I need to buy one for each cylinder?

    The blade is built by me, the a-frame and quadrant are heavily modified Western, and the rams are 1.5" x 10" Western..............
